We just wanted to celebrate!” Below she tells us about her experience with the When Freddie met Lilly girls…”

So please tell us – with months (or even years!) of planning, did the Big Day run smoothly!?
Yes! It ran perfectly 🙂 We were all just so calm and excited and it seemed like nothing could ruin the moment. We just were too busy celebrating with champagne to even know if the timing wasn’t right :)I think we ended up going over time with our Limousine hire time because we were having so much fun getting photos taken but luckily the company was great about it!

The day was absolutely perfect! There was not one thing I would change and everything went to plan.

Our theme was intimate, romantic and relaxed. We had a small wedding of 56 people, a lovely outdoor garden setting for the ceremony and a beautiful clear marquee for the reception filled with fairy lights and hanging flowers. We used accents of soft pinks and golds to decorate.

You might also want to wear a specific colour or style of dress depending on your religion.

Typically, gowns worn in church weddings are both modest and eye-catching. You should avoid gowns that will reveal too much skin and look for a dress with a gorgeous fabric and flattering cut so that you can still look amazing.
